ICU - Get Well Soon

Have you seen the super cute sketch that was just released at Sketch N Scrap or been over to our Facebook page?

I had a lot of fun with this sketch, I also just picked up this funny stamp set a few weeks ago as I have been needing to build up my card inventory and I noticed I really don't have very many get well or thinking of you cards.

I was also happy to make a masculine card as well as use up some of my stash that I have had forever and a day. I used some copper brads from Stampin' Up! That adorable bronze glitter ribbon from Close to my Heart, some very old pattern paper that I cut up that was from a kit and that teal cardstock that has been in my scrap bin for a good long time.




















Here is our May 20th card sketch. To play along head over to the Sketch N Scrap blog.

Sweet Baby Girl

Hello back again with an exclusive Birthday Bash Crop challenge

My daughter takes the most adorable photos of my grandkids and this one is one of my favorites of my youngest one at 6 months.



I used some papers from the Beautiful Friendship Kit and love the feel of the page and as I was adding the finishing touches I noticed my kit had a sticker that said "Pearls are always appropriate" I also finished up the page with some pearls instead of my normal bling. I am loving how it all came together, but I am little bit biased with the subject matter. I also used some PML cards for the middle parts. You don't only have to use those in pocket scrapbooking projects. Often time they are perfect page elements.

Let see what you come up with for Birthday Bash Sketch #2:

Dreaming of Summertime

Hello back again with our May 15th Sketch...so many sketches this month I hope you are inspired!

Here I am using up some more of my Echo Park sticker sheet...go me! I thought it would be fun to make a page about summer because I have been itching for some good weather. Here in the Midwest winter has been holding on and every time we have a nice day and think spring is finally here, it is followed by snow. Even my daughter has said enough! She loves snow so you know it has been to much this time.



Stop by our blog to link up with today's sketch and for a chance to win a prize through the end of May.

Let see what you come up with: Sketch #153

Flowers for Grandma 6th Birthday Bash - Guest Designer Spot

Have you ever wanted to be on a Design Team?

Have you ever thought about trying out?

At Sketch-N-Scrap we have Guest Designers! This is a perfect way to try out the Design Team life and see if it is all you thought it would be. We would love to have you enter into the 6th Birthday Bash Crop Designer Challenge. 

I decided to scrapbook these photos from last summer of my oldest granddaughter picked me some flowers. I must say they are the prettiest little flowers I have ever seen, but I might be biased

I used some Bella Blvd paper called Campout. I have been bashing this line for a few months and only have a little bit left. I was happy when I had enough letters to spell out flowers. I fussy cut some paper to make the flower embellishments. 




Here is the sketch to use:

Lazy Days SNS #NSD2017

Hello back again with challenge 4

Today we have this sketch and our TWIST is up using balloons or hearts...or both on your layout. I decided to scrapbook a few more of these fun park photos with my little on and my grandson.

I have also been trying to bash up some of my stash and so I challenged myself to use up this sticker sheet that I have from Echo Park. I was able to match up some Dotty for You paper from CTMH that is also real old but matched just perfect and came up with this fun page that features a large balloon...a hot air balloon.


Here is a close up of this cute balloon. I have been wanting to use this thing for years and was so happy to have the perfect photos and the perfect challenge to use it up.


Here is just another angle where you can see the layers and the little gems that I have also been using on lots of stuff. They are my new favorite embellishment.
